A run on a bank or other financial institution is a situation where a large number of depositors withdraw their funds at the same time.

A run will very quickly threaten the liquidity of the bank, and ultimately its survival.

Runs can be self-perpetuating once they have begun, as the run itself causes further loss of confidence in the institution.

Sometimes known as a liquidity run.
